It looks like the cold weather Halton saw over the weekend is here to stay.
At least for a little while.
According to Environment Canada, an extreme cold warning is still in effect for the region.
Wind chill values of minus 30 to minus 38 will be prevalent this morning (Jan. 21)
- Ontario to expand blue box program, increase number of items accepted across province
- Man killed crossing road in Burlington
- There are 38 new cases of COVID-19 across the region today
Wind chill values will moderate above the warning criteria of minus 30 this afternoon as winds ease.
Tonight, you may want to keep that extra blanket handy. Temperatures, according to Environment Canada, will once again fall to near minus 20 and with light winds, wind chill values are expected to be between minus 25 and minus 30.
A milder air mass will begin to move in Tuesday.
Here’s what temperatures we can expect to see throughout the rest of the week.
Risks are greater for young children, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, people working or exercising outdoors, and those without proper shelter.
Environment Canada is reminding people to cover up, and that frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.
Environment Canada is also reminding people that if it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.
Keep warm, Halton.
